lenses please, sort out what you already got, afs 105/135mm f2, afs 180mm, afs 35mm f2 etc, stick a nano coating on all of them. Sort out a fast 50mm Nano ED etc at least comparable with AFS 85mm f1.4, Canon did usm years ago. Improve the product line of what you already got, people will come

On Adobe releases Photoshop Lightroom 5 article (253 comments in total)
In reply to:

fyngyrz: Does it still require OSX 10.7 like the beta did?

Worthless to me if it does. I have a very stable 10.6 system, not about to change it to get a feature CS5 already has, since CS5 runs just fine on 10.6.

Programmers who, in true knee-jerk fashion, require the latest OS from Apple for no good reason whatsoever, should be fired. Who are you serving, Adobe? Apple? Or the poor sod who pays you money for your app?

Well, with a 10.7-requiring app you made sure you wouldn't get my measly few dollars.

Mac OS X v10.6.8 or v10.7

On Nikon issues service advisory on D600's dust issue article (240 comments in total)

Press the lens release button and watch the body recess, hazard a guess it's entering the body at this point or somewhere close. The reasons a D600 is not on my list is Polycarbonate mount and a price-point is so close to D800, it's a no brainer.

Correct they recently spent a fortune on shop refurbs so can't see them letting that go.
I'll give you 1/20 on they downsize high st presence, improve online and restructure under new finance and new LTD before or in new tax year.

All high street retail has to compete with online, the high street will soon become high end retail and one big food hall, part of the problem is local councils with crippling business rates, they need not worry as they'll pass costs on to residents. The next ten years is going to be very interesting

Also for Redundancies the Tax-Payer will pick up most of the tab as LTD company in Admin, restructure finance and come back as Jessops Retail Ltd, time will tell.

On Just Posted: Hands-on Nikon D600 preview article (376 comments in total)
In reply to:

David Rosser: Park Cameras
D800 £2249
D600 £1956
If you can afford £1956 you can afford an extra £293. I can't see many people rushing to buy D600 now D800 price is dropping and it is available of the shelf.
Nikon have not timed this at all well D600 street price will drop quickly to something under £1700.

I reckon £1500 in a month, D800 all the way, specially given the polycarbonate front on D600, not sure I'd want a heavy lens hanging from that

Joe P Doyle: Congrats to all who pre-ordered, and congrats to those who cancel. I'm an Nikon fan but I don't believe this crock for one minute, goes to show there's money in selling cameras and training at the moment more money than in taking pictures in the current market. the favourite number seems to be 99999, so Nein,Nne,No for me.
I'll wait for 1,999.99 :)

My comment is directed at Nikon not retailers, we know margins are tight for retailers. Bricks and Mortar also have the overheads which also make it hard for them. The whole scenario has been handled badly given the release date of rrp

On Tamron releases image-stabilized 24-70mm F2.8 zoom article (190 comments in total)

Brilliant well done Tamron, hope the focus speed is a little better than the 70-200mm

It's a nice camera but pricing is a little optimistic to say the least, personally at that price I'd expect a DSLR with fuji own mount. aka Fuji S6 PRO with full frame sensor. Maybe Im being Over optimistic, got to love optimism.
